November 2017 sector competition: strand 1 Manufacturing and Materials
Innovate UK is to invest up to £19 million to support innovation across the manufacturing and materials and Infrastructure systems sectors. Funded projects will target opportunities that offer significant changes in productivity and cutting-edge innovations.
Funding will be allocated as follows:
up to £5 million for projects up to 12 months
up to £14 million for projects between 13 and 36 months
A further £16 million is available to fund Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs).
There are two strands to this competition, this one being Strand 1: Manufacturing and Materials. The other strand is Infrastructure Systems.
To apply, an eligible project in manufacturing and materials, must cover at least one of the following areas:
- innovation in a manufacturing system, technology, process or business model
- innovation in materials development, properties, integration or reuse
- a manufacturing or materials innovation, rather than a product innovation
Proposals must improve business growth and productivity or create export opportunities for at least one UK SME involved in the project.
